Tanning is a booming business that has more than 30 million customers in the US each year. Still, this does not change the fact that regular exposure to UV rays increases the risk of melanoma and skin damage. Research has shown that tanning even 10 times a year can increase melanoma risk by up to seven times! The bottom line is that there is no safe way to tan, so make sure to wear a sunblock that protects from the UVA and UVB rays of the sun, avoid dangerous tanning beds, and try a healthy spray tan instead!View Thread

"Keep an eye on it!" That is what you hear from your dermatologist after your periodical check-up. It is almost impossible to be sure if your mole is changing in color, shape, size. Probably it is already too late once you notice a significant change. Finally, I heard about a new website who can help us. www.skinofmine.com You can upload a photo to analyze your mole, skin condition and track changes between doctor visits. If they can do a great job, they should get a Nobel prize. I am looking forward to your feedback. Thanks, JimView Thread
